Ponte Palatino (Hudson/Tiber), 2024, is a site-responsive lace and textile work made for a private home in Nyack, New York, facing a window that overlooks the Hudson River. The imagery comes from ancient and contemporary Rome, co-mingled with architectural elements of the home – namely, the window lattice. 

The work is made from cotton and linen threads, using a variety of techniques including bobbin lace, weaving, and stitching.  It is mounted on an upholstered frame and has overall dimensions of 61” h. x 77” w.
